Meaning of Bodhi Heart
Our Guiding Principles
means awakening or enlightenment and bodhi-heart
means a heart that is awakened or enlightened.
An awakened or enlightened heart is a heart that
is nurtured and balanced in the qualities of
compassion and wisdom.
The landscape, structure and activities of this
Bodhi-Heart Sanctuary will then be an expression
of and a guidance from both compassion and
wisdom – hence, our motto
Compassion with Wisdom.
